|Mika Björklund - Risen [wh066] - Mika Björklund|
The album Risen consists a pair of long-form works by Mika Björklund, a young Finnish sound artist who has previously released Nocturne [wh054] on Webbed Hand. This is definitely headphones-in-the-dark music -- real introvert listening. These two tracks begin in a similar manner, but soon diverge and express many different moods and textures. Risen "The concept is to play with different kinds of ambient music, I've tried to get a feeling of progression from dark to light, past to future and so ...

|Saluki Regicide - Rain I [wh002] - C.P. McDill|
Rain is a series of conceptual CDs produced under the auspices of Webbed Hand Records. Each "Rain" is a CD-length ambient recording ideal for listening to while relaxing, working, or socializing.

|Tribe of Astronauts - Percolations [wh064] - Tribe of Astronauts|
The inscrutable Tribe of Astronauts is a collective of varying number. Little can be known about the Tribe of Astronauts because they hide behind digital masks. Percolations may or may not be the first Tribe of Astronauts release, because they eschew the idea of chronology. However, this much is known about them: they care about you. They like you and want to enrich you with sounds. This unusual experimental work is a group of blended variations on a simple structure and limited set of tones and...

|Saluki Regicide - Dematerialized [wh001] - C.P. McDill|
Saluki Regicide's first album of soundtracks for weird dreams, these peculiar sonic paintings are less music than opiate science fiction. This is headphone music for playing in the dark, plain and simple. The work of Saluki Regicide is a transmission from one synaesthetic consciousness to another. Simultaneously dark and witty, it engages your mind and leads it to some very strange places. Thank you for listening to this Webbed Hand Records release...

|Various Artists - Constant Mix [treetrunk042] - Various Artists|
Not many things in this world are constant. Maybe you can think of a few. In 2005, mystified discovered a drone that he was so impressed with that he decided that he could listen to it constantly. He created a longform piece from this drone, with only a few embellishments, and asked Webbed Hand Records' ( www.webbedhandrecords.com ) chief C.P. McDill if he would release this new piece, "Constant". Mr...

|Mystified - Constant [wh057] - Mystified|
Despite being "minimal" this new opus by Mystified is also full of subtlety and warmth. In a nutshell it is a long-form dronescape, lightly seasoned with dimly audible sparkles, tones and harmonics. The central theme is pleasantly massaging industrial hum, with a bit of distortion and crackle in it. Produced by Thomas Park, 2005. Cover art by Thomas Park. If you like the Webbed Hand Rain series, as well as the other excellent ambient releases on this label, then Constant will be your cup of tea...

Sound artist Mika Björklund's latest project is a journey by evocation to the abandoned island city of Gunkanjima, which for a while during the 20th Century contained a heavily populated mining settlement. This desolate place still has its apartment towers, factories, schools and other building intact but crumbling. Through drones, musique concrete and other idioms of electronic music, Mika guides us through its resonant passageways...
